For the Record: WG EU fail: promoting fake tanks
Thanks to Chr15 for this one Hello everyone, this is something that actually made me giggle. You know how Wargaming has regionally-split Facebook pages, right? If you are German, you will see the German page, if you are American, you will see the American one and so on. Well, the German WG FB page is really funny, because it apparently employs historical specialists. However, WG “specialist” does not mean “expert”, it means “his mum said he’s special”. Check this out – German FB “specialist” is asking, what tank is this? Yea, that’s a photoshopped picture – a notorious fake, allegedly showing the E-25 hull, but in reality it’s “just” a Hetzer, shopped to look like the E-25. Unfortunately I can’t link it to you (you have to be German to see the German WG FB page, or at least reconfigure your FB somehow). Obviously, people who actually deal wit a tank game should be able to recognize blatant fakes. No E-25 hull was ever built as far as we (and Mr.Doyle) know. According to Kniepkamp, several hulls were built by Alkett, but noone ever found them.
